Former Police Station Full of Exposed Brick Asks $350K

New, 2 comments


This former police station in North Philly is so nice they listed it twice: this listing offers a glimpse into the building's past, whereas this one keeps the viewer guessing. Either way, there's a whole lot of exposed brick.

The decor is very sparse, and though Fishtown is a hub of exposed-brick-o-philia, this North Philly home definitely has every Fishtown adaptive reuse project beat. However, some of the walls look like they could be a touch too rugged for comfort with regard to the structural soundness of the building.

On the other hand, it's clean, spacious, and includes at least four bathrooms, and it might just be slightly more secure than other homes in the area due to its former status as a police station.

Here's a video tour of the place. Note to realtors: always set your video tours to peppy music. This one feels like it belongs in a horror movie, complete with heavy breathing and darkened corners.

House Vitals:
Size: Three stories, four or more bedrooms, and four bathrooms.
Amenities Include: Exposed brick for days, lots of space, the knowledge that your residence was once a police station, and a basement kitchen.
Asking Price: $350,000
